Anticancer Drugs from Animals Plants and Microorganisms Book Description :

Affords researchers ready access to a vast body of information on identifying and isolating natural anticancer agents… The authors open this valuable text/reference with an in-depth exploration of the vast potential of plant, animal, microorganism constituents as sources for new and effective anticancer, antiviral drugs. They update the literature on cancer-causing and related viruses with an emphasis on HIV. And they summarize the better known tumor promoters and carcinogens, and point out the fine line between antineoplastic and carcinogenic activity. The lion’s share of the book consists of an exhaustive compilation, in tabular form, of terrestrial and marine products. The first section covers terrestrial and marine plant and animal antineoplastic and cytotoxic constituents, organized by source. Within each chapter, entries are listed in order of molecular formula. Included are the more active synthetic and some semi synthetic analogs, with indications of which modifications are most likely to be useful. Also as an aid to quick reference, indexes provide access to entries by way of compound name, molecular weight, and species name. In the second section, the authors offer an exhaustive survey of marine plant and animal products, including both those with known biological activity and those without. As in the previous section, entries are listed according to molecular formula.

Anticancer Drugs Book Description :

There are over 50 clinically approved anticancer drugs, as well as numerous steroidal agents, and in addition there are many new anticancer drugs in various stages of preclinical and clinical development. The anticancer drugs embody a diverse array of chemical structures. The purpose of this two volume publication is to provide a comprehensive review of the metabolism of anticancer drugs. The authors, each expert in their fields, have attempted to emphasize the relation of metabolism to the therapeutic and toxic effects of anticancer drugs, drawing whenever possible on human studies. There is a critical need for new approaches to treating cancer and it is certain that we will see an increasing number of new drugs with exotic chemical structures used for chemotherapy and perhaps chemoprevention. To understand the mechanisms of action of any drug it is important to know how the drug is transformed in the body, either into active metabolites or inactive products to be excreted. With this information the success or failure of a drug in arresting cancer cell growth can be assessed, and perhaps more effective drugs designed. Medical science has taken the first important steps toward controlling cancer. The use and study of current chemotherapeutic drugs has taught us much about how toxic chemicals can be employed to treat human cancer; comprehending the underlying metabolism of these drugs should facilitate even better modalities of treatment for the future.

Anticancer Book Description :

The revolutionary, New York Times bestselling guide to the powerful lifestyle changes that fight and prevent cancer—an integrative approach based on the latest scientific research “A common-sense blueprint for healthy living.” —Chicago Tribune “Resonating with cancer support communities and recommended nationwide.” —Los Angeles Times “Life affirming . . . filled with practical advice.” —The Seattle Times David Servan-Schreiber was a rising neuroscientist with his own brain imaging laboratory when, in the middle of an equipment test, he discovered a tumor the size of a walnut in his own brain. Forced to confront what medicine knows about cancer, and all that we still do not know, Servan-Schreiber marshaled his will to live and set out to understand the complex inner workings of the body’s natural cancer-fighting capabilities. He soon found himself on a decades-long journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, a new view of health. Anticancer is at once the moving story of one doctor’s inner and outer search for wellness and a radical exposition of the roles that lifestyle, environment, and trauma play in our health. Drawing on the latest research in integrative medicine that blends conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely explains what makes cancer cells thrive, what inhibits them, and how we can empower ourselves to prevent their growth. His advice details how to develop a science-based anticancer diet (and the small changes that can make a big difference); how to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and meditation; which toxic, unsafe products to replace in your home; and how to stave off the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds to regain balance. Anticancer’s synthesis of science and personal experience marks a transformation in the way we understand and confront cancer. A long-running bestseller that has changed the lives of millions around the world, Anticancer remains a pi
